While causing other matchmaking issues.
Activision has released patch notes for Call of Duty: WWII’s latest update that went live today on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The update focused mainly on multiplayer, with general improvements to connectivity, leaderboard, UI, loading, and splitscreen functionality. Other bugs addressed in the patch include a clipping issue and an “out of world” exploit in the Nazi Zombies game mode.
Select multiplayer weapons have been balanced with the update, one week since Call of Duty: WWII launched. The BAR rifle received “decreased fire rate and widened hip fire spread,” while the LMG Bipod attachment takes less time to set up while aiming down the sights. A bug with all sniper rifles that caused “zooming to exact center when aiming down the sights” has also been fixed.
Despite the patch, there was no mention in the notes of the “Prestige bug” that makes some players who have ranked up unable to claim Orders, missions that reward XP and other resources. Check out the full patch notes below for all the changes.
Since the update went live early this morning, Call of Duty: WWII players across Reddit and Twitter have reported not being able to join matches and other server issues. Activision announced it was aware of the issue and that “we’re actively working to restore matchmaking functionality.”
